SYMPTOMS

Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Mediation Server sends the following generic SIP response code if the gateway to which Mediation Server has routed the outgoing call is unreachable because of connectivity issues:
500: Server Internal Error
This generic response code does not trigger the retry logic in Communications Server 2007.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, download and install the Communications Server 2007 Mediation Server update package that was released in October 2008.

For more information about the update package, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
